Hello all!

	I followed the instructions for mailman, set up "test" and then
opened my web browser to find this error message:

	Bug in Mailman version 1.1

We're sorry, we hit a bug!

If you would like to help us identify the problem, please email a copy of
this page to the webmaster for this site with a description of what
happened. Thanks! 


Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/home/mailman/scripts/driver", line 89, in run_main
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/Logging/StampedLogger.py", line 48, in
    Logger.__init__(self, category, nofail, immediate)
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/Logging/Logger.py", line 40, in __init__
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/Logging/Logger.py", line 63, in __get_f
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/Logging/Logger.py", line 55, in __get_f
    f = self.__fp = open(self.__filename, 'a+')
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/mailman/logs/error'


I am not a python programmer but, reading these entries, I think that
mailman may not have the proper permissions to write to either syslog or

Is this a correct assumption?? If so, how can I fix this? 

Thanks in advance!
